Medium

Background

Antonella uses a  variety of mediums, including acrylic and pastel, as well as watercolour pencils , graphite and  inks.  Her style is a mixture of  different techniques and although she  experiments  with  a variety of mediums, she predominantly  uses  pencils  and acrylics. 

She particularly enjoys drawing which allows her to create images in a way that she can express the beauty and the  unseen that lie beyond conventional forms. 

She likes to experiment and to try things out without knowing where it will lead. This approach allows discoveries to be made which is part of the creative process.

Inspiration

Background

Inspiration

"Art and self expression are my core passions. I  believes that creativity is the key to our inner self and well-being and that connects us to our true self.  I developed a deep passion for drawing at an early age with a special fascination for people and surrealistic, fantasy imagery. 

The  Pre-Raphaelites have long been my rich source of inspiration through   the myths, legends , fables  and  the symbolism  celebrated  in  their  works.   My  influences  are  diverse  and  include a  love  for  literature, photography ,  theatre    and  fashion.  

My art is an expression of my soul  journey:  it incorporates personal stories ,memories,  states of mind and dreams ."
